Yeah, it's on his Twitter... :-o Which one could it be??? All factory teams are already full. Yoshimura? Well, it would be shame to ride only few races when he would finally decided to race on world stage... :?

Mladin. What a shame. 10 years too late.

I don't know why the guy never wanted to go the WSB. He had the opportunities I am sure, the factories would have loved to have a successful yank and he's always had the talent.

Maybe he just loves Denny's and bad accents too much to ever really want to leave the states? Many AMA riders with big talent seem reluctant to step up. Spies could have gone much earlier than he did. Only Hayden has ever really jumped into the big time as soon as he had a chance.

Just to carify on the AMA comment I made, I was of course only talking about recent times.

Going back to the 80's and 90's, Rainey, Schwantz, Scott Russell etc was a different generation and amoung the best racers on the planet. Respect. As a 9 year old Brit and therefore massive Foggy fan I hated Scott Russell until I met him and he was class. He was awesome on that Suzuki in GP's too, so entertaining. Like when he led at the A1 ring til turn 1!

Great to see Leon at the front, now he has a top bike he should be a contender.
Also great to see toseland in the top 3. Hope he keeps it up to shut up the armchair critics on here or other sites who slagged him off to high heaven. All these guys deserve our support, but rarely get it if they even slightly struggle for one reason or another.

Think back a year ago to some of the comments that people were making about haslam. "Useless", "waste of a good ride", "never do anything" were comments made i remember, now people are talking about him like they should have been all along. The ones that slagged him off (you know who you are) should hang your head in shame.
